Student Privacy Protection Act

Leave My Child Alone!
fatcat politicsLeave My Child Alone is making an effort to support the Student Privacy Protection Act.   You may have heard of the controversy that terrorist sympathizer Bill O'Reily created in condemning a referendum in San Fransisco over trying to prohibit recruitment on school campus.   This is an opportune time to push for the passage of H.R. 551 which will automatically "Opt Out" all students instead of the current method.   Leave My Child has done a really good job of getting this issue to the forefront.   I have posted on the effort to expose the pentagon plan before :: Stop the Pentagons Illegal Database.   We need to help support this current effort.   Please join me in signing this petition and becoming a citizen co-sponsor of H.R.551.   - fc

Student Privacy Protection Act (H.R. 551)

Where children are concerned, it's time to make it a family decision (not a federal mandate) to release our home phone numbers and home addresses to military recruiters.

US Representative Mike Honda's Student Privacy Protection Act does just that. It makes a simple change to No Child Left Behind ensuring schools release private information to military recruiters only if families request it, rather than the other way around.

Please help show Congress that there's broad-based support for family privacy by signing on as a Citizen Co-Sponsor below. U.S. Rep. Mike Honda will use this petition to urge fellow members of Congress to co-sponsor this important legislation.
I support H.R.551, the Student Privacy Protection Act of 2005, which amends section 9528 of No Child Left Behind. H.R. 551 prohibits military recruiters from contacting students unless these minors and their parents specifically "Opt In" and consent to receive such communications. :: link

H.R. 551: To amend the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 to direct local educational agencies...

Summary ::

Student Privacy Protection Act of 2005 - Amends the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) to revise provisions for military recruiter access to secondary school student information.

Requires ESEA-assisted local educational agencies (LEAs) to notify each secondary school student's parent of the option to consent to a release of the student's name, address, and telephone listing to military recruiters, and to give the parent the opportunity to provide such consent in writing. Requires such LEAs to provide military recruiters, upon their request, with access to such information on a student only if the student's parent has given such written consent.

The content of the post should be about what you want for the world, whatever that may be. The purpose is not to make a particular political statement, but simply to make a noise. If 30,000 weblogs all post the same unusual word, it WILL be heard.
